[News] Ocean Alley release the official video for the track “Hot Chicken”

Following teasers on their socials, Ocean Alley have come through with details of their next album “Lonely Diamond and a juicy new single called “Hot Chicken.”

Built upon a stinging, sticky groove, the single balances expansive guitar shredding with a lyrical stand-off about temptation, using metaphors about soaking up poison and golden snakes to convey seduction. It’s evocative stuff, take a listen below.

Lonely Diamond, Ocean Alley‘s third album and follow-up to 2018’s Hottest 100 dominating “Chiaroscuro,” is due 19 June and was made in-between their hectic recording schedule.

I think of Chiaroscuro as the younger sibling of this album,” vocalist Baden Donegal said of the album. “With Chiaroscuro, we just went in there and did it, whereas this record we took time to reflect. We demoed, we wrote, we re-wrote. It’s got more depth to it…

Recorded at the Grove Studios with long-time producer Callum Howell, the album will further evolve the band’s love of old school sounds.

A press release boasts Lonely Diamond will combine “70s guitar rock, country and western, old school funk and synth-heavy new wave to create a deeply contemplative and atmospheric odyssey reminiscent of music legends including Fleetwood Mac, Dire Straits and Pink Floyd”.

It’s pushing forward into the unknown,” guitarist Mitch Galbraith said of the record. “Taking a journey to a different place or a different time that seems familiar or that you’ve been before and all the emotions and feels that come with that.

Ocean Alley were originally scheduled to be touring Australia next month, but instead are playing big venues early next year.

To whet our appetites, last week, the band released behind-the-scenes tour film called “The Archives,” documenting the six-piece’s life on the road touring Europe and North America.
